The School of Education offers several education centers that include:
The mission of the Center for Urban Educators (CUE) is the reform of urban teacher education. The vision of teaching and schools guiding the Center’s work is one that supports teachers as socially responsible people who are intellectually engaged and act as advocates of children, parents, and their communities. The Center works within the School of Education of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus and in partnership with New York City public schools.
The Learning Center for Educators & Families (LCEF) is the off-campus extension of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus School of Education. LCEF provides a supportive environment for prospective and practicing teachers, which allows them to hone their skills. In service of these aims, LCEF provides meeting space for the School of Education faculty and for groups of teachers from the NYC schools to collaborate and work on various projects together.
The Teacher Resource Center, part of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus School of Education New Teacher Support Services, was created to provide the resources and workshops to help new teachers feel more successful in their classrooms. Materials are available to instructors as well.
